Use of kml files:
My use of kml file is very useful. For example when Harald posted a kmz file with many tracks. By converting the kmz to kml it can be directly input into my pc viewing file then I can save all the tracks at once into gps format. Much easier than using the kmz file and converting the tracks one at a time.
Computer storage space has never been an issue for me, and yes I have many kmz file stored and very few kml files stored since I use the kml files just for conversion to gps tracks.
Please do not think that the kmz files are not useful. Keep them coming.

you could also (in Google Earth) open a new folder, drop all the kmz files you want into it, then save the folder as kml onto your PC, then drop folder into your GPS
